Hello Friends! It's almost Valentines Day and so I am sending you all the love!
It has been a long while since I checked in here, but as you will soon see, not much has changed.
I think I mentioned that I have a new camera, so this is a very experimental post. I always want things to be simpler than is possible, and I don't want to spend the time it takes to learn new gadgets. But things finally reached critical mass and I think I made a breakthrough!
I just started with what is right in front a me as a subject, but there are always one or two new things of course.
I am so proud that after two years my Oxalis shamrock is still alive! It went completely dormant, wilted, and lost all it's growth just before Christmas. I panicked! But I read up and learned that due to conditions that this is kind of normal. I repotted, got it a sunny window, and you wouldn't believe how fast it all came back. I'm just so pleased!!
This little embroidered runner is new to me and makes me almost as happy as my resurrected plant.
I use my few seed sacks in a ton of different ways, and always have them ready nearby too.
And a couple of mustard pots still line the shelves.
And pitchers in a row. (I would need detailed instructions on how to live without those...)
There have been so many dark days that I decided to leave my lighted birch trees up a while longer. I brought them home from the shop and still couldn't find the heart to put them away. There have been so many houseguests of late that I find they are a lovely way to light the way in an unfamiliar place. A gentle night light emanating from the center of the whole house.
There are only small changes to the top cupboard shelf. Sometimes I just want to look at something different!
These little brown baby boots are new here and cheery as all get out! And after a very long time of longing I managed to get a few sprigs of tallow berry to decorate with. They are not native here, but I love the way they look in vignettes.
The days whiz by. Folks come and go. Before we have a chance to look up we have turned another year older. I find that I don't change things up as often as I used to, and love the sameness of things more. At least in the wintertime. . . .
I hope that this finds you surrounded by all that you love too!
Cheery days ahead to you!
